‘”You have read very good books, I am sure; there is an excellent book however, that never grows old; it is the one that God has written on every plant, on every grain of sand, in yourself; it is the book of Divine love. Give, therefore, your preference to that beautiful book and add to it a few pages of admiration and gratefulness. Read and understand all other books in the light of this one.” —Peter Julian Eymard
“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.”
― Alan W. Watts,
“We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thought.” –A.W. Tozer, pastor and author
“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
Open your hearts to the love God instills . . . God loves you tenderly. What He gives you is not to be kept under lock and key, but to be shared. –Mother Teresa
“Where love is, there God is also.”
– Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. — Romans 15:13 NIV (from Bible Gateway,com)
Here in the U.S. we like to throw the name of God around a lot. Our “pledge of allegiance” to the flag of our country contains the words “one Nation under God.” Even our money has the words “in God we Trust.” But do we — really?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust one man alone to solve all the problems in the world and in our country?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust the government to create a just society?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust our guns to keep us safe without killing an innocent friend, neighbor or family member?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust our money to provide our needs and make us feel important?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust the military to destroy our enemies without destroying the lives and futures of the soldiers who are fighting?
Do we trust God? Or do we believe that perhaps God has turned his back on us and that we have to fight the evil in the world on our own?
It’s time we looked at what’s going on in the world and asked the difficult questions. Do we really trust God?
God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone,
but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars.
~ Martin Luther ~
